'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Finally Lands First Trailer

The big talk regarding Solo: A Star Wars Story was whether Alden Ehrenreich could effectively play Han Solo and be a worthy successor to Harrison Ford. The movie is a prequel following the life of Han Solo as a young man.

Solo: A Star Wars Story is Han Solo's origin story, who is one of the most loved characters of the Star Wars universe.

If you were already anxious about this flick, chances are the teaser trailer did nothing to ease your space-based fears.

Han Solo looks to be the exact same person that Luke Skywalker meets him in A New Hope. "He said a great thing when I met him", Ehrenreich said.

And Davis was also full of praise for Ron, adding on his own social media account: "Reminded me what a wonderful experience #Willow was, made so by your expert direction & friendship". Meanwhile, Harrelson is "putting together a crew", and wants Han and Chewie to join.

We get a brief glimpse of a CGI creature (visually similar to Lupita Nyong'o's in The Force Awakens) in the pilot's seat.

Davis was announced by Ron Howard to be joining "Solo" after the film's director subtly revealed the actor will appear in the hotly-anticipated movie in a now unspecified part.

Original filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The LEGO Movie, 21 Jump Street) parted ways with Lucasfilm over creative clashes that led to obvious upheaval in the midst of production.

Solo was written by veteran Star Wars writer, Lawrence Kasdan with his son Jon.
